Product Details


These rounded, engaging characters (they default to white), compassionately drawn, lend depth to the spookily enjoyable plot. Crafted from shivery supernatural elements, this fable celebrates the power of empathy and forgiveness.
—Kirkus Reviews

Rushby’s eerie tale should suit younger middle grade horror fans; the plot moves quickly, and the lightly creepy atmosphere remains spooky without becoming threatening.
—Publishers Weekly

Well crafted and carefully paced, this manages to be appealingly tense and suspenseful while attending to serious emotional themes of forgiveness and responsibility. The legend of the tree and the missing kids offer obvious intrigue, but the heart of the story is Immy’s relationship with her father, who has fallen into a depression after an accident back home. The eventual connection between the tragedy of the tree and the tragedy of that accident makes for a full circle completion to the story.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

This title will feel right at home on library shelves, providing an immersive, well-paced page-turner with the comforting feel of a classic English tale.
—School Library Journal Online
